Official US Army Photo
This Home Page is dedicated to the memory of the more than 58,249 men and women who died in Vietnam. Their sacrifices should NEVER be forgotten. My primary interest in creating this page is to disseminate information of interest to military veterans and others, with a particular emphasis on veterans of the Vietnam War. I am proud to say that I am one of more than 2,700,000 men and women who served in Vietnam. No American war (save the American Civil War) was as divisive to our country. For a wide variety of information about the Vietnam War, including maps, photographs, personal accounts, poetry, locators and databases, please visit the Vietnam Veterans Home Page. (The photo above pictures the insertion of an element of the 1st Air Cavalry Division. Official US Army photo.)
From 1970 to 1971 I proudly served in the United States Army as a military advisor with Military Assistance Command, Vietnam, (MACV), Advisory Team 70. Advisory Team 70 was assigned to duty with the 5th Infantry Division, Army of the Republic of Vietnam at Lai Khe in III Corps.
I now belong to Counterparts, an association of advisors to Southeast Asia. Counterparts is always looking for members and I am always looking for anyone who was assigned to Team 70. As the Members-in-Memoriam archivist I am always seeking information on deceased advisors of all branches of the US military and our allies.
I currently live in Williamsport, Pennsylvania in the north central part of the state. Nestled along the Susquehanna River the surrounding area has some of the best hunting, fishing, hiking and canoeing in Pennsylvania.
One of my interests was serving on my local Selective Service Board. I have now fulfilled my 20-year term on the board. I have long believed that a strong defense is in the best interest of our country and the Selective Service System is a means of insuring that our Nation can react quickly to foreign military threats. If there are vacancies on your local Board I encourage you to volunteer and get involved. Local Board Members are uncompensated volunteers. Your time expenditures will be minimal and, in event of a national defense emergency, you can be assured that you will play a vital part in the effort.
Qualifications to serve as a Board Member are minimal:
If you're a young man, age 18 through 25, and are living INSIDE the United States or its territories, or if you have an APO/FPO address, you can register with Selective Service by clicking on the button below.
I am proud of my Army service and believe that everyone who served in the Army should be proud, too. I also serve as a volunteer Ambassador with Freedom Team Salute, an official recognition program of the United States Army.
